LOVELY LILACS!

Hello all and Happy Friday! Hope your creative week is ending on a high note! It's Power Poppy Friday here on the ole Out to Impress Blog and have I got a digital treat for you! In fact, let's get right to it!

Just in case you missed it, last Sunday the Power Poppy Instant Gardeners unveiled the latest addition to Power Poppy's Instant Garden a.k.a. their digital stamp set colleciton! And this one, my dear friends, is not an image that is to be missed!


Say hello to French Lilac, which Marcella Hawley drew so lush and lovely that you can almost smell the beautiful fragrance of lilacs coming out of each and every card! ;-) 

Since this is a digi, I used THIS tutorial to prep my image and I actually created a 4 by 5" canvas and draped the lilac off both corners of my front panel. From there, I colored this lovely up with Copic markers, trimmed, and the rest is matting it up with the help of a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die, some Lavender Vivid Ink sponged on top of the die cut tag (sentiment is also from the French Lilac Digital Stamp Set), and then a fun (and very old) Martha Stewart border punch accented with rhinestones! Ta da! 

Here's a peek at the Copic colors that I used.....

And, here's a close up! Don't you just love that little lady bug? I sure do!!!

And that, my friends is it! As always the fabulously talented Bloom Brigade has a eye candy parade for you using Power Poppy stamps (many, if not all used this amazingly beautiful lilac image!). So, hop on over and see........
